CBR Review: Moon Knight #5

I recently reviewed Moon Knight #5 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Do you ever wonder about the tone of a comic? I’ve been sitting here thinking about Moon Knight and what tone Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev are going for. In considering tone and comics, I’ve come to the conclusion that most comics are horrible at conveying anything between serious and goofy. It seems that comics exist at those two poles with anything in between read by most as existing at one of those extremes. After five issues, it’s become apparent that Moon Knight is somewhere in between. Could it, in fact, be a dramedy, a book that fluctuates between serious and comedic explicitly, while maintaining a generally less-than-serious undertone?"
